Welcome to my new website and blog. Over the past few weeks I have been setting up the site with images and galleries. I'm still in the process and adding artwork so please check back periodically. I will start adding more blog postings in the coming weeks. I will comment on my process and insiration as well as giving some art tips.

I would like to congratulate two of my students for winning National Scholastic Art Awards!
Cortney Woodis won a Gold Medal in drawing at the national level and will be receiving her award at a reception at Carnegie Hall in late May. Katie Scott won a Silver Medal in photography at the national level. Great Job!

I spent much of the weekend framing the new paintings. Here is one of the frames in process. Currently I'm making my frames from cedar. I really like the minwax "gunstock" stain. It has a warm deep reddish brown color. It really gives the cedar a nice rustic look.

Happy St. Patrick's Day! I hope everyone enjoys their yearly green day!
It's not too green around here! We have about a foot of white stuff on the ground and we're supposed to get some more tonight and tomorrow.
One thing for sure, it will be Summer soon!

Here is a picture of a couple new paintings almost done! One is 24x36 and the other is 9x12. Once they're done I'll take final photos of them and upload them to the galleries.

I have resumed my Grain Elevator Series works. I am looking for more elevators to work from. I know of some in western Minnesota that are relatively close to me.
If any of you know of any that are within an "easy" days drive of me let me know. I know some of the old ones are coming down fast.
Thanks for the help.

I have resumed work on my Grain Elevator Series. Some of you may have seen some of the new work on my site. I will continue to update the art in that gallery as I finish the work.
I have also added a new gallery- Works on Paper. I will post my drawings and watercolors in there. Some are Grain Elvators and others are landscape.

This is for those of us that grew up with Bob Ross as our inspiration. I show this video to my students quite often. It's a great reminder what art can do for the soul!
I could not embed the video so follow the above link! It's worth it.

I started a new painting the other day and I thought I would post some in process pics of the work. It's a 24"x36" oil painting of a grain elevator. The grain elevator is just south of Saskatoon Saskatchewan Canada. Here is the start of the sky. You can see the underpainting the initial drawing of the building.
